Private Gap Fees

How do they work?

The way the gap fee works is you pay the initial Fee (as outlined in the fees column) and then then Medicare Rebate is the money that you can claim back from Medicare.

Upon payment of the consultation fee, we can provide you an immediate rebate onto a physical debit card. We are unable to process rebates for phone tap-and-pay.

If you do not have a physical debit card, you will be provided a receipt for which you can make the claim online.

**Please not that these fees apply specifically for a $25 gap fee. If the gap fee increases (for procedures etc.) then the initial fee will also increase accordingly.

Patients WITHOUT a Medicare card

Patients without a valid Medicare Card will need to pay a private fee. 

We DO NOT process any overseas insurance on site. After you finish your appointment with the Dr. we will  provide you a tax invoice,  which can be used to make your claim with your overseas health insurance (if you have overseas health insurance).

Procedure Fees

We do various procedures on site at the practice including:

  • Pap Smears

  • Cryotherapy

  • Implanon insertions and removals

  • Skin Checks

  • Ear Syringing

Ultimo Medical Practice charges a fee for most procedures performed during your consult. This fee covers the cost of the various equipment that we use including dressings, surgical equipment, anaesthetic, sutures and cryotherapy. 

Your doctor will inform you of the out-of-pocket costs prior to commencing. For your safety and wellbeing, we only use sterile and disposable equipment.

Please inquire at the front desk or call us on 9212 1400 for procedure fees and the costs associated as they all incur different prices.
